Every Sunday, my mom and my aunt take my grandparents out for adventures around Los Angeles. Usually they involve visiting old haunts and interesting LA places. I often get a phone call from them while on Sundays saying, "We're in ______ (insert any teeny tiny Los Angeles neighborhood here), where should we eat?"
Today, I received a different type of message from mom:
"Hi Jen, uh ... I was hoping you'd be available. We seem to be locked in a cemetery and I was wondering if you could call someone to help us ..."
I think she wanted me to Google a way to get out of the cemetery. She later said she thought I could call the non-emergency police department number for her.
Fortunately, they got out soon after when a groundskeeper found them, but that's one message from my family that I'll be happy to never receive again.
I know that things have hit a little lull here, and you may be seeing a couple more non-food related posts. I've been assured that this is an ok thing. If you don't agree with it, you can blame my friend who encouraged me to write about whatever I need to. Her blog rhymes with Schmood Fusings.
I finished "Michael Tolliver Lives." Truth be told, I finished it in about three days. It was satisfying and interesting to see Maupin's view on San Francisco in the 80's through to today. If you haven't read any Tales of the City books, definitely start with the first -- this one will only be interesting if you've read the others.
Does anyone have an interesting mushroom salad recipe? I was thinking of doing a salad with a variety of roasted mushrooms that can be served at room temperature. If you have a suggestion, I'd love to see it.
